Harper, Mr.
Mr. Harper - Walsenburg World - November 21, 1901 - Bad Accident - A serious accident occurred at Bowen last evening that resulted in the death of a colored man named Harper and the probable fatal injury of an old gentleman named James Miller, a miner. The accident occurred on the 1,800 foot tramway. Miller was walking down the tram and was near the bottom when he was struck by a car that had gotten away from its moorings above. Harper _______ when it struck the bottom. Mr. Miller is at the hospital suffering from injuries which it is thought will prove fatal. His right leg was cut off, his left arm broken and skull fractured. He is 56 years of age and was living with a son at Bowen. His wife is in Illinois. We could learn nothing about Harper except that he was employed at the mine. The accident was caused by the breaking of a rope which held the cars before they were started down the tramway, which is very steep, a 56 percent grade. The coroner will investigate who was responsible. Trinidad Advertiser.

Edward Harris – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – May 18, 1876 – Murder of a Deputy Sheriff – The La Plata Miner gives the following account of the murder of Edward Harris, deputy sheriff of La Plata county, on Sunday morning, April 23d: “It appears some trouble existed about a water ditch, between a person by the name of Lamb, and the Lambert family, composed of father and three sons, who were formerly residents of Silverton. A warrant was issued by the local magistrate, upon the complaint of Lamb, for the arrest of Louis Lambert, and was placed in the hands of Sheriff Harris, who attempted to make the arrest, but was forcibly resisted and threatened by Louis. He then summoned a posse comitatus of fifty-eight men, who surrounded the Lambert house by daylight on Sunday, April 23d, and Sheriff Harris, advancing toward the house, called on Louis to surrender. Receiving no reply he repeated the demand, upon which a shot was fired through an aperture in the house, from a rifle, the bullet taking effect in Sheriff Harris' head, killing him instantly. The posse then kept up a brisk fire upon the house, under cover of which two of the number, Messrs. Sackett and Stibbins, recovered the body from where it had fallen, and in doing so were shot at three times from the house, and received close “calls” each time. After removing the body the posse withdrew for consultation, during which time Hugh Lambert, the father and two of the sons, Louis and Richard, ran out of the house and escaped, a number of shots being fired after them without effect. Riley, the youngest of the Lambert boys, was placed under arrest, but no charges being preferred against him, was discharged. Deputy Sheriff Harris was a single man, about thirty-eight years old, and hails from Rhode Island.
